Chad Ryan Jr. Is Here!!

Finally...my little one decided to show up!!! If you follow me on YouTube, Twitter and/or Instagram then I'm sure this isn't news to you but I had to stop by and let my blog family know. Motherhood has been a huge adjustment to say the least but I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Amazing how this little guy has stolen my heart ;-) 


Introducing Chad Ryan Jr. born January 17, 2013 at 6:39p weighing in at 9lbs 2oz and 20 inches...yep, he's a big boy!! This picture is from his newborn photo session last week. Our photographer was wonderful and I can't wait to see the rest of them. If you're interested in seeing how this little one made his appearance (well not the actual birth but the labor leading up to it), make sure you check out the video below!


I'll be taking a little bit of a break from blogging to enjoy these precious moments but I promise I'll be back shortly. If you'd like to keep up with what's going on in my world, feel free to stalk follow me on all my other social media platforms (links found at the top right). 

Enjoy your day ;-)

41 Weeks Pregnant

Hey there! It's me again...still no baby but I'm pretty sure he'll be coming out within the next day or so. I went to my doc appointment today and got a foley bulb inserted to help speed up the process. If nothing happens tonight then I'll be going back in the morning to get this party started...say a prayer for me!! Anyway, I figured I would take this time to get in one more prego update in before he makes his appearance ;-)


How Far Along? 41 weeks and 4 days

Total Weight Gain/Measurements: I've never actually mentioned this before but in total I've gained about 55lbs. Wow, just saying that makes me go crazy!! 

Maternity Clothes: No thanks, I'm over those. Even went in Motherhood Maternity last week and walked back out. I'm ready to buy some normal clothes. 

Stretch Marks: Yeah and I swear they multiply every other day...not a good look! 

Sleep: Very uncomfortable.

Best Moment This Week: I'm hoping his birth will be the highlight ;-)

Miss Anything? At 41+ weeks prego, I miss it all.

Movement: He is still very active, even though I know he has to be out of space in there.

Food Cravings: Not really, I have noticed more of a sweet tooth lately though.  

Symptoms: Nothing new that I haven't already experienced. Lately tired and crabby are at the top the list, over it! 

Labor Signs: Well I think I lost my mucus plug this afternoon (sorry TMI) and I've been cramping/contracting since I left the doc office earlier.  

Looking Forward To: Finally holding baby boy in my arms...I cannot wait!!!!!

Be sure to check out the video for more info ;-)

XOXO,

One Month Ago

Happy Friday!! I swear it's been the longest week of my life but I'm so glad it's over. These pictures were taken exactly one month ago. If someone would have told me then that I'd still be pregnant at 41 weeks, I wouldn't have believed them. What can I say?! Here I am, still pregnant and going crazy in the meantime...



Sweater : Gap 


Skirt : Motherhood Maternity ~ Boots: Ross



This will probably be the last time you see a pregnant outfit post because lately I haven't really been feeling the prettiest. My daily wardrobe consists of leggings with Uggs and my everything seems to be swollen. You should be thankful that I don't want to subject you to all that...it's not a good look! 

Anywho, enjoy your weekend ;-)

Happy New Year!!

Hey there! Long time no see right?! I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready to get back into the swing of things. Still no baby. He's technically not due until Friday but I thought maybe he would grace us with his presence a little earlier...not so much, he's taking his sweet little time.



Dress : Seraphine Maternity ~ Booties : Bakers ~ Earrings : H&M ~ Bracelets : Forever 21



Oh course I didn't go anywhere for New Years Eve but if I did, I would have worn this. These pictures are actually from our company Christmas party last month (at 36 weeks prego). I had completely forgotten about them until the other day when I realized they were never posted...oops.  Better late than never I guess ;-)

What do you think?

XOXO,
